NIST released an RFI Tuesday as part of its effort to create a voluntary, flexible framework.

Report: White House could blunt impact of sequestration - at least for a while

A new report from independent watchdog group OMB Watch suggests the White House has a few tools at its disposal to blunt the impact of the automatic, across-the-board cuts.
